Hello everyone! Like many artists I know, I started painting later in life. So I don't have a degree to prove I'm a painter. But I have learned from excellent local teachers that have freely shared their knowledge and experience with me. Their help has given me the foundation I need to create with oil, watercolor, and pencil. I currently display my artwork at The Katbird Shop in Schenectady, New York. I'm supported by my fellow artists in the Schenectady Art Society and by my patient family members.
Sales of my landscapes, animal portraits, house portraits, and still-life paintings have steadily grown over the years. I'm also seeing success in entering juried shows and receiving awards for my artwork from time to time. But I'm most satisfied with the challenge of translating the beauty I see around me into images that others can enjoy.
